That is why BEIS introduced the UK-wide unpaid award penalty scheme, in addition to other existing enforcement action, to improve award payment rates. Since introduction in April 2016, the unpaid award penalty scheme has levied penalties of £485,646 and secured payment of £829,343 of previously unpaid employment tribunal awards as of January 2018.</p><p> </p><p>The Government also committed to further reforms to enforcement, including unpaid awards, following the Matthew Taylor Review of Modern Working Practices and will update on progress on those reforms in due course.</p> more like this
